in the backroom deals -- >> even movements can be cloistered. i remember a dinner during the george w. bush administration in southern california. it was norman lear and his wife, larry david, bob scheer. they were sitting around w eeping in their expensive soup about the fact that we were living in hell. rupert murdoch on the media. george bush was president. norman lear had his pulse on american culture for 30 years. why cannot figure out how to deal -- deliver a message that is important and happening? >> that is important. we can find messages that speak to people where they are. they can also have some satire like stewart or colbert. there is the idea of exposing with satire. it opens people's eyes to the hypocrisy and corruption of our politics. the problem is you want the captivating stories and images and vocabulary, but a lot of the colbert-stewart stuff is so absurd and over the top that people do not want to get engaged. >> that is where a large number of people get their news. >> i think the obama campaign was a pivotal point, bringing people in. now they leave. there is the pos
was incredibly reasonable last night when discussing the nsa and i think if you replaced him with george bush, nobody would be complaining. george bush would have said the same. >> not on jay leno. >> you act like a hypocrite, you condemn him because it came out of his mouth. having said that, there's an overwhelming amount of chaos inside and outside this country. president obama takes on the role of a calm pilot, weaving the plane through the storm. the problem is his policies. you can argue about being on jay leno. that's not the problem, the problem is he should be doing something about bigger issues like joblessness, which is a fact that he is not at all engaged in the fracking issue which would do a lot to reduce strife in the middle east, lower the four buck, five gallon buck of gas. not ragging on him for playing basketball. what a bunch of baby games. >> i push back a little, too. i don't have a problem with him playing golf on free time, but when you close 22 embassies, pull that many american diplomats off line. >> he hasn't come out in an official presidential press conference to
that from george w. bush w who will not enter into the fray of this but understands what president obama is going through. he has been in that oval office. making these tough calls. there is only a few living americans who will understand how difficult these positidecis are. >> we are given the heads up of 1:15 eastern time for this statement. as often happens, with this white house, it is a bit delayed. we don't have a two-minute warning as of yet. we are back with our panel, chris wallace and ollie north. what do you expect him to say? is this more laying out the case? >> i think we will probably -- with a situation where he will announce he will continue to deliberate on this and will try to build some relationships. my guess is because the window is so narrow. you would have to do this tomorrow night. sunday might. because he is not going to do it before he briefs the rest of the members of congress. that's going to be tomorrow. he is going to leave monday night for sweden and then -- but -- that gives him essentially sunday night or monday night to make the attack. you probably don'
going back sadly to the george w. bush years when, you know, he looked into his soul and he could see the real man of vladimir putin. students of russia and people who understand russia, i think, believe that in the era of the new openness after the collapse of the soviet union, there is still a strain and a very strong strain now, of the old lurch to more totalitarian or communist thought. clearly putin has been of that mind set. he is not changing. doesn't mean we can't work with him on some things. but we have to be much more realistic. >> putin doesn't care about snowden. he couldn't care less with him. he is using this. >> to prop himself up. >> show how tough he is. i'm much tougher than your guy. and that's what he is doing. so, if it were me. if i were barack obama, number one, i wouldn't say anything publicly because that strengthens putin. that gives him more power. i would send kerry over there. pretty soon. >> oh, god. that's going to be a disaster. >> bill: kerry, you might not like him, but kerry can be forceful. >> he has done so well on the middle east peace process. >
of then senator biden threatening to impeach then president george bush if he did not get congressional approval before going into iraq. this is becoming a cauldron of uncertainty. it is not good for the region -- >> president clinton lost some missiles in afghanistan. a lot has been written about how that in the end lead to 9/11. you never know about the unintended consequences here, do you? >> no, you don't. president clinton lobbed some missiles into southern iraq and at that point, a lot of people, a lot of our enemies took the notion that we were a paper tiger, that we were not willing to follow through with the actions and that we wanted to just do something. now is not the time to just do something. we ought to have a plan and now that the president has backed up , it is time to all come together and figure out what is it we really want to do that is in the national security interestses of the united states of america and then do it. >> i wanted to -- what greg just mentioned leads into my question. this is all coming down on the anniversary of 9/11. if the house votes what is the chance

worried about presidents who act unilaterally and he's doing it again just like george bush did. we made george bush come back to the congress and get a vote before we went into iraq. the congress, i think, made a mistake in doing it, but at least we all took responsibility for what happened. in this one, the president is taking it all on himself. what's the hurry and what is the goal? what are you expecting to be the goal that we accomplish day two after we've shot in 50 tomahawk missiles? when we have taken out assad? is that the goal? or is it take out the syrian army? or is it to lay the country waste to make rubble? what is it we are intending to get out of this? >> you clearly want a vote on this, and some of our viewers have been tweeting about this and there's a lot of consternation, obviously, as we stand now in the precipice of what looks like another war in the middle eve. one viewer writing into me, the president needs a vote here if for no other reason to have cover for what happens afterwards. do you think there will be political recriminations after the fact if the preside

to this conversation. this morning, former president george w. bush was asked on fox news about the decision president obama faces. he wouldn't weigh in directly but says the u.s. can't ignore what's going on in other parts of the world. >> as time passes, people forget the lessons of september 11. one of the key lessons is the human condition elsewhere matters to the security of the united states. >> as all of this is going on, the civil war continues in syria. this morning, measuwe're gettin details about a new attack. this video may be disturbing. syrian activists say this a tack took place on monday. they say a government plane attacked a school with a substance-like napalm. the images show no blood, just burns over 50, sometimes 80% of student's bodies. rebels say ten people were killed and dozens more were injured. with me now, rhode island democratic senator jack reed. he has also served as an army ranger. thank you for taking the time. i want to start with the news from britain yesterday. and the rejection of preliminary vote on support for a strike. how big a deal is this as it comes to -- or

. there are all kinds of safeguards built into this. i remember george bush, when he talked about this program, when it was first revealed by the new york times. he said, when al qaeda calls somebody in the united states, i want to know who they are calling. that is kind of the underlying philosophy of this program. talking again -- it always intends to spill over into people thinking, maybe we are monitoring the actual content of their conversations, is we are not all stop this metadata. it is effectively the outside of the envelope that is put in your mailbox. it is that information that is on the envelope. and the date stamp in the postage stamp. would you have people believe that metadata has no significant privacy interest? i would rather, if i had a choice -- i hope not to have either of these choices -- of having every phone conversation i have for 30 days listens to, which is impractical, to have a large number of people doing all my metadata collected for 30 days. i would much rather. >> if it was collected by proctor and gamble or colgate, i would be worried. sometimes, we do not thi

is just a continuation of president george w. bush in the foreign policy realm where the president, this president is just continuing the hawkish policies of the bush administration. and then the next minute, they're claiming that the president is weak in foreign policy showing weakness to our enemies and yet, completely forgetting about all the drone strikes that the president is doing, and the other thing about what jim demint is doing which i find rather callous is would he rather the president of the united states not close the embassies and make our -- and make american personnel targets for a terrorist attack? i wonder what they would be saying if the president followed through on the advice that they're giving him. >> you mean another benghazi. >> yeah, exactly. >> benghazi, benghazi. right on cue, rick santorum not a foreign policy expert accused the president of being timid. i love the personifications, timid. muscular foreign policy. they turn on to some school yard kind of event. let's watch. >> i think it's really a consequence of the policies of this administration. i
believe the economy was so messed up by george bush that obama struggled mightily to overcome this horrible situation he inherited. the second reason is most americans believe republicans only care about rich people. and those are branding problems that the republican party has to to overcome. and it's hard to overcome it because you've got three obstacles; academia, hollywood and our major media, all of which are overwhelmingly liberal. when you say something, it's got to be interpreted through the filter of those three entities, and often it's been distorted. >> host: larry elder is our guest, this is booktv on c-span2 live from the los angeles times festival of books, campus of usc. mike's in fort worth, texas. hi, mike. >> caller: how's it going, larry? my -- pretty good. i'm a african-american democrat, but i agree with you one of the big problems in the african-american community is lack of fathers in the house. but i think, larry, when you say that, you kind of come off kind of harsh on black people. now, what's the reason behind the lack of a lot of fathers being in th

council approve as has happened before, president george bush with iraq and president bill clinton with the co kosovo bombing in 1999. >>> live to the state department with an update from there. >> good avenue. we want to emphasize state department officials, white house officials, pentagon officials are emphasizing both on the record and privately that the commander in chief, president obama, has not yet made any decision about the action the united states is going to take in syria beyond the fact there will be an action. sources tell me the likely targtsz of the u.s. campaign will include the delivery systems for bashar al assad's chemicalarsenal. we are said to be striking command facilities located in damascus but also syria short range missile launches looking to conduct strikes against those targets. i'm told bashar al assad's presidential palace, some of the governmental military locations in damascus will not be targeted because a lot of key systems have been evacuated. a lot of artillery positions in the syrian government are located in mountains outside the city and those
blake former deputy assistant to president george bush. great to see you. first brad, i want to ask you this. if it is true, we reported a lot that it happen. we reported that it went beyond the cincinnati office, but not report with certainty that it stopped. how surprised are you? >> i am not surprised. it is out of control. the irs is so big and unweilding they can't be controlled we have a real problem and the fbi and justice department have yet to interview the agreed parties that are targeted by the irs for the political beliefs. >> they contacted and asked to be interviewed. >> jay sekulo came on and said they are waiting for someone to contact them. >> they haven't talked to anybody. and the president told us that this cannot stand. what has he done. he runs the justice department and super vises the fbi and runs the irs. >> you have to admit it is not an independent organization. >> i don't know if i should admit or not. >> this particular agent unnamed we don't know who it is. we know that dave camp on the ways and means committee and public and partisan and it is a partisan i
political career substantially on opposition to the iraq war and criticism of george w. bush did not allow un weapons inspectors to work through. syria and iraq called it a dumb war in iraq. and made his way politically off of that initial attack. what is interesting for the president, he is going to have to retreat to the same arguments that george bush and others would if he launches a military incursion in to syria. >> and also the issue of russia and iran. russia issued a warning of sorts, don't act to quickly and let the un weapons inspection play out and we have seen mistakes in the past by the u.s. we have a complicated relationship with the russian leaders. whatever he does in syria impacts them or iraq, and that may not be a show down he is not ready for. >> whatever relationship that exists tone president obama and president putin in russia will not help. that but the challenge to the president. the prime minister of britain, and david cameron and president of france, they are making the noise, let's bomb, let's bomb. and they want to repeat it would seem western powers did under
of george bush for doing what we did in iraq. now, that's inconsistentents now. it's really baffling to see the people on the left just rallying behind president obama, yeah, go ahead. fire the missiles! we're with you. but the people who were so antiwar and anti-conflict in the past, now they're ready to go without even knowing where we're going. >> gretchen: so many unanswered questions still today. but one of the big questions this morning is what kind of chemical weapons does syria actually have? what evidence does the united states have? heather nauert is here to break it down. >> we are learning interesting information this morning. the syrian deputy foreign minister telling reporters that sarin gas was used in several parts of the country, but he claims the rebels were the ones responsible for that attack. this assertion is not banged by the us -- backed by the united states which believes the syrian government unleashed the attack and is the party responsible. but what is interesting about this statement, gretchen, is that it is the first time we're hearing from a syrian government
into the tony blare's comments with george bush on the microphone? oh, assad is like honey? what were they talking about? they seemed to like him. >> i don't recall that one. i recall the explaytive. referring to the g8 meeting in 2006 when -- during the israel hezbollah war, and bush leaned over to blare and whatever he called him, he said, you know, if we request get syria to stop this, put a four letter explaytive there, that will calm the situation, and what was interesting about, you know, that comment, and bush did not like that after 2003, 2004 particularly, and i asked bashar about that comment, and i said, what do you think of that comment by bush caught on tape? again, half expecting him to say, oh, you know, typical this, typical all that sort of stuff, he said, i love it. i love it because that means they are thinking about me. they are worried about me. that is part of syria foreign policy is having some sort of leverage. it's a weak country military militarily. the leverage is through the support of hezbollah, iran, support of hamas and palestinian territories. that's th
on the radio. you can hear alan there. brad blakeman, deputy director of former president george w. bush. this is a comedy show. terror threats were out there six days publicly, brad. is this right venue for the commander-in-chief? >> that was absolutely the wrong venue for the president's first blacker remarks on one of the largest threats we face since 9/11. 20 embassies, assets of the american government were closed. thousands of personnel were displaced. we're not allowed to use the word evacuation according to the state department. according to the state department we didn't evacuate our assets. we had orderly departure. words mean something and when president speaks it means something. bill: force the departure was the word used. >> they had to leave within hours? bill: alan, the venue, were you okay with it? >> i'm fine with it. i think republicans have a lot more things to worry about whether the president does the do night show. -- "the tonight show." it is not just a comedy show. it also has people on all walks of life and, you know, to go after the president because he happens
in the george bush white house. he's taking your comments and questions as we discuss syria this morning. jerry is up next from cookville, tennessee. jerry good morning. caller: good morning. the president is talking about the shot in the bow. i find it frightening when it comes to this president and foreign policy. it was a game of chess, i believe it would be a check mate game against this president. he's done nothing but absolute disaster. look at north africa. look at that. some democrats are calling it a success his foreign policy. it's frightening what's happening. i don't see anything that's any good. just think, if he happen to won the nobel peace prize, how bad things really might be. host: we'll go to democratic line, dave is waiting from washington d.c. good morning. caller: peter. the reason that the u.k. not to proceed is because there was a lack of conclusive evidence. in the regions and suburbs of damascus there is not conclusive evidence that the chemical weapon attack were perpetrated by a horrible attack regime. the obama administration has made entirely clear that they wi
of texas does recently because of the leadership though shown by george w. bush, is that when you look at states like arizona, not typical in arizona, but i was just thinking alabama, arkansas' next. if you look at arizona, if memory serves arizona export something like $50 billion a year. if you look at texas can we export $206 billion a year. 35% of those exports go directly to mexico. i think george w. bush understood the tenuous but important relationship that has to exist with our neighbors to the south. i think he was very strategic and smart in building and growing and fostering a relationship over time. and today, texas is benefiting from his leadership back then. a large proportion of the hispanic owned firms in this state and minority owned firms in the state are actually owned by mexican nationals. and so this didn't happen by accident. it happened because very strategic visionary leadership happened two, three decades or a decade ago. now we are benefiting from the. >> creating an environment. >> absolutely. doesn't happen overnight. now you see other states beginning to re
on their taxes. >> up next, george w. bush institute resale the series of discussions looking at immigrants contributions for america. this panel focuses on the economic effects of naturalization. from dallas, this is about one hour. >> a pleasure to be here. i worked for closed with president bush when he was in the white house trying to advance immigration reform in the last battle and so it's a pleasure for me to be back in his beautiful new house, talking about immigration. so thank you to this institute. i want to harken back as we get started to the ceremony that we saw this morning combat incredible moving ceremony because what we're going to talk about here today is not just out immigration is good for america, but have naturalization and citizenship actually even ups the ante and makes immigrants even more beneficial for the united states. to benefit themselves, but it's also a benefit for the country. so the very people we saw this morning when they came in the door, they were great for america but as they went out the door their even more. they will be even more of an asset. we w
andduring during the george herbert walker bush administration, the anti- tank buster rounds that were 1982.ed in we are not totally innocent either. it is hard to believe the administration. i know they are doing their best to settle the conflict in the middle east. is kind of hard when you are just as dirty as the rest of them. you can also reach out to us via e-mail. andy from vernon, new york. thanks for holding on, republican line. taking myink you for call. i want to add onto to what the last guy said. ,f your audience goes to google they are going to find numerous stories where syrian rebels admitted to an associated press correspondent that they were responsible for the chemical weapons incident, which obama is trying to blame on bashar al- assad. the casualties were a result of by mishandling the weapons. they were told that they were not properly trained in handling the chemical weapons or even told what they were. that is where it came from. this is really reminiscent of the buildup to the first iraq war in the 90s when the iraq incubator incident, in which they fabricated story

feared nor respected. i'm not saying you go back to the george bush days and have wars that you can't win. but i am saying if president obama makes these statements, we're going to get those people who killed our people in benghazi and then does nothing about it. if president obama says there are real consequences to you, mr. putin, if you keep snowden and don't return him, and then we do nothing about it. if we tell iran there are real consequences coming to you if you continue your nuclear weapons program, and then we do nothing about it. at a certain point, leading from behind those guys stop looking back for orders, and they go their own way, and here we are. bill: you wonder if this extends beyond august. you have september 11th coming up in the first half of the next month and whether or not this stretches into that. kt, let's hope nothing happens. kt mcfarland on what we're seeing today. thank you. patti ann: new reports that a top u.s. diplomat met today with a jailed senior leader of egypt's muslim brotherhood. u.s. deputy secretary of state william burns apparently joining offic
. national security analyst juan zarate is with us. he served for president george bush. good morning. we know it's both specific and vague. we know it sounds like the chatter before 9/11. what is the president getting? what kind of information and what kind of options does he have? >> the president first and foremost will want to know what information we've gotten overnight and over the weekend. intelligence officials and sources are pulsing the system. getting not only their sources but friends and alleyi'llallyies, try to gather as much information. my sources tell me there isn't that much that's new. the president may hear some updates but maybe not that much new. he'll get some updates. >> what's interesting is they say the operatives already dispatched. >> that's right. this is reminiscent the plot in 2010. you recall there was a plot to attack europe sites. people were worried about mumbai-style attacks coming from the al qaeda core. it never materialized. but officials were worried that they actually had operatives in place. that's great concern here. >> this

tremble? as michael hayden, cia director under george w. bush pointed out, many of these groups are really gangs of local thugs using the al qaeda name to build their brand. for washington to announce a grand campaign against them might exaggerate their importance, americanize local grievances and create a global threat that didn't really exist. the terror alerts have probably delighted these small groups for just that reason. the second strategy would be counterterrorism using drones, missiles, special forces and other kinetic tools to disrupt al qaeda-affiliated groups. by anyone's measure, the obama administration has been aggressive on this front. president obama has used more drones each year of his presidency than president bush did in his entire presidency. data gathering, as mr. snow den reminded us. the third possible approach to the threat of terrorism is to try to get local governments to fight the terrorists, but the places that these al qaeda affiliates have sprung up like somalia and yemen are ungovernable. only the u.s. has the technology, missiles and soldiers to disrupt te
baker had with george bush because -- i don't know exactly the reason, but i said, for example, the other day, the national security adviser went to moscow to meet with the russian president has started arranging a relationship. if i was secretary of state would not have tolerated that. that is my job. and as national security adviser , you're a staff person, not a principle. i remember when general powell got the role. he understood. he came around to me and said, i am a member of your staff. obviously the president is my main guy, but my job is to staff the council. and so i think that is beginning to get out of kilter. in my book have quite a lot to say about the structural governance and how it is going, i think, in the wrong direction. >> host: secretary george shultz, a couple more issues on your mind. number one, demographics. you're worried about demographics. >> guest: i'm not worried. an observant. i see that the demographics of the world had changed and are continuing to change rapidly. the developed countries basically have no fertility. they are getting to be older
